    Lightbulb mascara that gets too thick to use

    If your mascara has thickened and can not be used, sit it in a cup of hot liquid and let it melt.

    I havent tried this one a friend suggested it. She swares it works

    Great tip! Sometimes you buy a NEW mascara & its really thick like that! Just keep in mind, for old mascara, that the longer you have it the more bacteria it grows. Everytime the wand is taken out & then but back into the tube it is transfering bacteria, so you still want to change your mascara regularly - especially if you tend to have problems with eye irritation, styes, etc. (But I know if you ladies are anything like me you don't follow that whole "change your mascara every 2-3 months" thing. I think they say that to sell more mascara! LOL!)

    This does work. It also works for ball point pens that have dried up.
